This recipe is based on the parmesan chicken recipe from Simply Recipes and it has become a favorite especially with my youngest daughter who just loves yellow squash! The chicken, the carnivore dad also deemed passable for the regular menu. Me, I like it because it’s so darn easy to cook that it easily qualifies for my weekday one hour meals list. This plate definitely should have some greens on it for nutritional balance’s sake, but I kind of like the yellow color scheme on this plate, don’t you?
The baked parmesan chicken and squash were served along with baby lima beans and rice pilaf.
The thing to remember here is to first batter your yellow squash before the chicken in order to avoid cross contamination.
After you’ve battered both the yellow squash and chicken, you can bake them in the oven together for pretty much the same amount of time and you’ll have dinner on the table in no time!
The only change I made from Elise’s recipe is that I didn’t cut the thighs into pieces but rather left them whole. I extended the cooking time to 20 minutes instead of 15 just to be on the safe side and it worked out perfectly.
I am a terrible housekeeper but I do love to cook so it all evens out in the end. I like to try new recipes that I think my family will like. However, I am not one to follow all recipes to the letter. I tend to tweak and change the recipes based on what I have on hand and how I am feeling at the time. Feel free to share your versions, I just might try it out next time I make the dish again.
